John Walker & Sons King George V is a blended Scotch that celebrates the granting of the Royal Warrant to John Walker & Sons in 1934. The edition blends some of the rarest whiskies from distilleries in existence during the reign of King George V from 1910 to 1936, including Benrinnes, Cardhu and the precious casks of silent distilleries Port Ellen and Port Dundas.
In 1820, John Walker started out in business with a single small shop, but he always had big ambitions. Just over a century later, John Walker & Sons was awarded a Royal Warrant by King George V.
By then, Johnnie Walker was already well on its way to becoming the world’s most popular Scotch Whisky. Becoming a supplier to the Royal Household was an important step on that journey.
John Walker & Sons King George V commemorates the granting of the Royal Warrant on 1 January 1934.
It is created using only the finest whiskies from distilleries that were operating during George’s twenty-five-year reign (1910 – 1936), some of which, like the famed Port Ellen, no longer exist. They are blended together to reflect the distinctive Johnnie Walker style of the era.
It is an opulent and regal blend. Sensuous, layered and intense, the John Walker & Sons King George V is a kaleidoscope of flavours and aromas. Hints of roasted nuts, dark chocolate and an imposing sweet smokiness combine elegantly with suggestions of honey, citrus orange and rose petals. This is an extremely complex luxury whisky.
It comes to you in a regal flint glass decanter that echoes the iconic slanted Johnnie Walker label, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity with a unique serial number.
The John Walker & Sons King George V is the ultimate way to savour a supreme moment of success on your journey.
Enjoy it in any way you like, but we recommend it neat. Pour a 45 ml measure into a bespoke snifter glass. Accompany with a tumbler of iced water. Freshen your palate with the water between sips to unlock the full experience.
